ChargePoint BEV Charging stations going up in Madison, WI and Hillsboro, OR
Madison, home to engineering power house University of WI at Madison is taking a step into the future. Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) purchased six Coulomb Technologies electric vehicle charging stations from Carbon Day Automotive, Chicago, IL. More importantly, BEVs charged at the stations will have their emissions offset through renewable energy. The vehicle charging network will provide users with options that extend the range and use of their electric vehicles. The driving range for an electric-powered vehicle can be about 40 miles. Currently, owners have to recharge their car or truck at home or at prearranged locations. Only a handful of public vehicle charging systems are in place throughout the world.
